Arsenal have reportedly suffered a massive blow with Thomas Partey ruled out of the clash with Manchester United tomorrow.
According to the Ghanaian FA, Partey was left out of Chris Hughton’s squad for the upcoming international break due to an injury.
They released a statement saying: “Thomas Partey is left out of the squad due to injury.
“According to his club, the player picked up an injury in training and could be on the sidelines for a while, however, the Black Stars medical teams is monitoring the situation.”
A test for Man United awaits tomorrow
Thomas Partey has started in the right-back spot this campaign.
Mikel Arteta wants his team to be flexible in and out of possession. When they have the ball, Partey joins the midfield to pile pressure on the opponents.
With the Arsenal ace set to miss tomorrow’s game, Arteta could turn to Takehiro Tomiyasu.
He could also start Ben White at the right-back spot and draft in Gabriel to play alongside William Saliba at the heart of the defence.
Erik ten Hag must deploy Marcus Rashford on the left flank tomorrow.
The England international was ineffective as a centre-forward in the first two games of the season.
However, he created a goal and won the match-winning penalty last weekend when Man United beat Nottingham Forest.
Anthony Martial might lead the line again, but United supporters would be excited about the possible debut of Rasmus Hojlund.
The highly talented striker joined the Red Devils from Atalanta this summer in a deal worth £72 million.
He is yet to feature for United due to an injury. Ten Hag has confirmed that Hojlund has recovered and is in contention to face the Gunners.
A win at the Emirates Stadium would be a massive confidence booster for Man United.
